He strolled.
He paced each day.

That Stalker!

NO FATHER'S DAY

he died in the war
no Daddy and no present
the child.. never born

*I grieve for the children, their joy and smiles, who will never be..
Because their future Daddy died in the war!

Slave and Can't Help It

Hidden for so long,
Because of Society.
Someone, no one knows!

New World

a world forsaken
warring factions ne'er at peace...
a new horizon.

Missed

Distill emotion
to one cliché “I love you”
call it poetry

Wrap all your feelings
in colorful box, ribbons,
call it greatest gift

Inflated ego
sworn superiority
call it all I need

I hear no trace of
regret in the voice speaking
of indiscretions

I see no sign of
truth in the dark eyes that claim
to love me only

I feel not the touch
of kindness from hands that give
only when they need

Hit-and-run kisses
when all I need is for you
to linger a while

Beware the high ground
only time until the fall
inevitable

Singular captures
only the essence of one
and that one is you

I lost myself there
sometimes I think you love me
for bending to you

So say it’s untrue
though every verb indicates
quite the contrary

I can not believe
manipulated words when
you’re hiding your eyes

Redeem, for this heart
that fell blissful into you
is reaching out still

I'd Like to Know

The freeways are packed,
Long faces, fatigue, stress
Where are you going?

Like rats in a maze,
Guzzling gas, polluting air
What is so important?

Cell phones and laptops,
Purity of quiet lost
Mankind advances?

in five thousand years
our entire planet may be
a cemetery…

Lovelier Than A Rose

Oh lovely rose song
Pressed in that book for so long
Music can't be wrong

Memories that stay
always recurring array
Learning how to pray

Thoughts engraved so deep
Everlasting pure, keep
Reminding of love

Oh that lovely rose
Pressed in that book that was closed
She lovingly chose

Memories that say
True love won't take her away
Momma I miss you

Eight Months of Heat

Two months past solstice
Subtropical climate sears
Just open the door

Step into oven
Midday sun chars skin and lawns
Sweat flows so freely

Water use rises
AC gives welcome relief
Scalding sand on beach

Take frequent showers
Florida lifestyle envied
Northerners don’t know

Blazing heat last months
Visits to the Sunshine State
Best planned in winter

Tombstone - Like The Four Horsemen

they walked along
weathered, carrying their guns;
like the four horsemen…

down to the O.K.
guns blazing, bullets flying;
smoke clears, the strong stand…

Don't Spread the Hate

retelling the words
of the past pain that she caused---
forgive her sooner

Sorrow sparks sunrise
Where can my children roam free?

rain fell from her eyes
no one was there to catch them--
so she drowned her heart

Just another one

It is hard to miss
A person you never knew
Which is all she was.

When Crickets Moan

Disembodied howls
Tunneling through the black night
My soul begs to rest

A blow to the heart

She crys out in pain
No one there to comfort her
She suffers alone

~A Cowards Way~

Two legged dogs came, I fell 
Prey, Striking me from every direction
Leaving nothing untouched



















I wrote this remembering how I got ambushed when I was little
By these neighborhood girls I once called my friends but when 
I found out they were trouble, I pulled away and made new friends
and that didn't sit well with them and they turned on me,and then 
one unsuspecting day they showed up at my house, all of them..none 
would fight me alone, they all wanted a piece of me and they got it, until 
my brother showed up...But that's a whole different story.It just showed me 
that not everyone is who they seem to be, they were cowards and from that 
moment on, I was careful of how I chose my friends..Thank God after those 
teenage years passed things got better...
